DISPLAYING THE FEED ITEMS

Use the WP RSS Aggregator block or shortcode on any page or post to display the imported items.

Shortcode: [wp-rss-aggregator]

Each block or shortcode can use any template and it can also have its own parameters, such as selecting which sources to display items from, the maximum number of items to display, whether to use pagination, which page to show, and more.

Shortcode example with parameters: [wp-rss-aggregator source="123" limit="5"]

It is advisable to use the ‘HTML’ view of the editor when inserting shortcodes with parameters.

USAGE WITHIN THEME FILES

Here are two examples of a function call from within a theme’s files:

<?php
wprss_display_feed_items( $args = array(
    'limit' => '8',
    'source' => '5,9'
    ));
?>

ИЛИ

<?php do_shortcode('[wp-rss-aggregator]'); ?>

Часто задаваемые вопросы

What feed sources can I import items from?

Any source with a valid RSS or XML feed can have its feed items imported by WP RSS Aggregator. Most sites provide RSS feeds right out the box as shown here. If you can’t find an RSS feed, you may try to create one using our free service.

How do I display the imported feed items?

Use the template of your choice to display imported items anywhere across your site. To show the items, you can use either one (or a combination) of the options below.

  • Option 1: Use our shortcode in your posts and pages: [wp-rss-aggregator]
  • Option 2: Use our block in the Gutenberg editor (WP 5.0 and later)
  • Option 3: Call the function directly within a theme: <?php wprss_display_feed_items(); ?>
Is there a limit on the number of feed sources I can set up?

No, there is no limit for the number of feed sources to import items from. Having many (50+) feed sources should not present any problems in itself. However, pulling in posts from many sites is bound to put your server under some stress, so you might want to consider using a hosting solution that goes beyond your typical shared host and staggering the feed imports.

Check out our dedicated page on WordPress hosting recommendations (includes some affiliate links).

Does WP RSS Aggregator work using JSON as the source?

No, our plugin does not currently import from JSON, it only imports from RSS and Atom structured XML.

Why do I get «No feed items found» when I insert the shortcode on a page or post?
  1. Try adding a few more feed sources and make sure they are valid by using the RSS Feed Validator.

  2. Make sure that feed items have been imported by visiting the Feed Items page.

  3. Try out the solutions listed in our Feed Items Not Importing knowledge base section.

  4. It’s important to make sure your WordPress cron system is working well. If not, the feeds cannot be imported. If in doubt, you can install the WP Crontrol plugin to check for bad cron, or go to RSS Aggregator > Debugging and hit the red button to re-import all feed items.

If the problems persist, please contact our support team. If you’re using a premium add-on, please use the premium support channel.

Can I store imported feed items as posts?

Yes, you can do that using the Feed to Post premium add-on. You will not only be able to store items as posts, but as any post type. You can also set the author, set tags and categories, import images into the gallery or set featured images, and much more. These can then be displayed in your theme’s blog page, via a page builder, etc.

Some RSS feeds only give a short excerpt when using the add-ons. Any way around that?

Yes, along with the Feed to Post add-on we have another add-on called Full Text RSS Feeds that can get the full content of most feeds that only supply a short excerpt. The Full Text RSS Feeds add-on requires Feed to Post and a valid license key to function.

I’m not sure which premium add-ons are right for me. Can you help me out?

Sure! We built an add-on finder (guide) that will help determine what you need.

If you need any further help you can contact our support team.

Where can I find the documentation for the plugin?

I use this plugin to aggregate feeds on my site, and when an update caused issues the team really worked hard to resolve the issues, and they did. The constant communication was really great and a surprise because I have come to not expect such personal communication from people nowadays, especially developers scattered around the Internet. I have used this plugin for some time and it really keeps my site fresh with the news that makes the site. It's mainly a personal tool I built for myself, but it's out there for anyone to use to keep updated with crypto and tech news, so I want it to work well not just for me but in case anyone else is using it. Hat's off to the leadership and to this team for their quick responsiveness!

Using this plugin (the paid one) for almost 3 years now, always great service and quick response. The downside is just not many sites provide RSS these days. It will be good if the author can provide custom rss service too. 🙂

This worked brilliantly for pulling a news feed into our wordpress site. We used the feed to post plugin, which has some very sensible settings options (including minimum image size).

I purchased the pro version along with Feed to Post. This plugin does exactly what I needed it to do: grab posts from an RSS feed and import them as drafts to my site. After migrating my site from a development URL to production, I ran into an issue with a cron job. The entire support team was extremely helpful and responsive troubleshooting the issue with me. This is a rarity in today's world, and I am very grateful for all for all of their help. Great job guys!
